With a variety of bright and bold colors, the silicone youWare Band adds a little spice to your outfit in a stretchy form factor you're probably already familiar with. And with a portion of the proceeds donated to one of the following 8 causes, you can feel good about wearing it, too.

On the other hand (pun intended), the leather youWare Band is made with genuine leather that not only looks sharp, but feels smooth and smells like your leather jacket. Rock it like a hipster or tuck it under your suit jacket--it works either way.

As human beings, survival is our natural instinct. For those of us that find ourselves in the most trying of circumstances, this youWare Band packs 10' of industrial strength paracord with a breaking point of 550lbs! Carefully woven for fast release, this bracelet isn't a fashion statement... It's a back-up plan.

The weightless youWare Bangle was designed for the modern women that fancies a jingle. A small, discrete youWare Charm dangles on a weightless bangle that blends perfectly with your other favorites.

The mesh youWare Bangle is a bit more complex, but strikingly gorgeous. This beauty looks best on its own and glimmers for attention under the right light. A small, discrete youWare Charm is secured on your wrist by a reinforced magnetic clasp. Add crystals to the clasp for an even brighter shine.

                                   

The youWare Charm was made to fit most charm bracelets on the market--but at an incredibly small size, it "fits" almost anywhere. Precision engraving ensures your code is scannable even at the smallest of sizes.

*NOTE: Includes charm only; necklace, beads & white feather are not included.

                                    

We think our jewelry is beautiful but we understand not everyone is going to want to wear it. The youWare Keychain lives in your pocket or attaches to nearly anything for convenience. Keep it inside 'til you need it or let it hang out all day.

                                   
                                                        

Make youWare yours.

Setting up youWare is a breeze and you can essentially get started today. Compile all of your digital contact information and social networking accounts into the youPass app. When you receive your new wearable, a simple scan will synchronize youWare with your existing youPass account.

Wearable tech without all the tech.

youWare isn't really something you "use," it's something you wear. That means you can forget about battery life, delicate electronics and faulty hardware. That's right. Just wear it... Let youPass handle the rest.

Stretch Goal $55k:  youWare for  Watch & Pebble

If we raise 10% more than our goal, we'll bring the youWare experience to Apple Watch and Pebble. We don't want you to wear more than you need to. Help us exceed our goal and we'll develop an app for your favorite smartwatches, too.

Stretch Goal $60k:  youPass for Android

UPDATED We’re now bringing a native app to Android if we raise $60k or more. But don’t forget... everyone else can interact with youWare with a standard QR/NFC reader via a web browser even without the youPass app.

Stretch Goal $65k: youWare for Android Wear

With $65 or more in funding, we'll develop an app for Android Wear supported by popular smartwatches like Galaxy Gear and Moto 360.

Stretch Goal $75k: 14k White Gold

With $75k or more in funding, we'll produce a youWare Bangle and Charm in 14K white gold. youWare in white gold will be available for preorder through Kickstarter if the stretch goal is met.

Stretch Goal $125k: Tap to Link 

If we raise $125,000 or more, the entire youWare Collection will be upgraded with support for NFC at no additional cost to existing backers. NFC enables Android users to instantly establish a link with a simple tap of their NFC-enabled smartphone.

Please note, the tap-to-link feature is only available for Android. Tap-to-link may become available on iOS if/when made possible by Apple. Tap-to-link will not be supported between two youWare devices.

Price Modifications: Existing backers will receive the NFC upgrade at no additional cost. If our stretch goal is met, the retail price of youWare Band will increase to $10. The retail price of other youWare styles will remain unchanged. Please note "retail price" does not refer to any discounts offered via the Kickstarter campaign.

Design & Shipping Modifications: Adding NFC to the youWare Collection will not require design modification or shipping delays for youWare Band. However, the youWare Charm, youWare Bangle and youWare Keychain may require an additional dongle for NFC. If the design of your initial purchase or the anticipated shipping time changes due to the addition of NFC, you will be notified and you will have the option to receive your initial reward with or without the NFC upgrade.

Risks and challenges

youWare is powered by the same technology used in youPass. Our software infrastructure is ready to support youWare today. However, as with any project, there are still some risks and challenges.

1) Manufacturing - Key partners have manufactured working prototypes of the entire youWare collection. Most forecasted quantities have a production time of less than 20 days. Dependent on the success of the project, significant demand may require additional production time. If this results in any delay, orders may begin shipping in the order they were received. If your order contains multiple items (via a collection), your order may not ship until all items are produced.

2) Design Adjustments - The youWare lineup is ready for mass production but small design modifications are still possible. Any last minute modifications will need to be tested before mass production, which may result in minor delays.
